Books That Shaped America: "Red Harvest" by Dashiell Hammett
Bender Library, American University, Wednesday, November 19 at 7pm
Erik Dussere, Associate Professor of Literature at American University, leads a discussion of Red Harvest by Dashiell Hammett.

The Books That Shaped America events are conversations for the American University and metro-D.C. communities about books that have helped shape American society. Each discussion starts with a focal text, but the conversations stretch far beyond the pages of the books themselves. Each discussion is led by a faculty or staff member from AU.

Attendees are encouraged—but not required—to have read the featured text. The event website provides references and links for additional materials attendees may find interesting. Admission and parking are free for this series, and no RSVP is required to attend. (LenneaRB)
